Leona has been helping a friend study for the ASVAB and although he hasn't taken the final test yet, he rants and raves about all the things Leona has taught him thus far. His confidence level has already increased at least 90 percent.

Lena was an effective communicator most noticeably. With the time we had together, I found her truly thorough and knowledgeable about the GRE math that we went over.

Leona was patient and kind with my son. She's willing to get the job done whatever it takes. She took the time to listen to what he had to say and addressed that in his tutoring session.
- Colin E. from Alexandria, VA
Leona is a gentle, soft-spoken tutor who brings great skill and knowledge to the table. She is easy to communicate with and responsive. My 16-year-old son enjoyed his session with Leona and found the time spent with her to be very worthwhile.

Leona is excellent. She has the best personality and is super intelligent! She makes my daughter feel like she can learn anything and then helps her do it!
- Lakiesha C. from Reston, VA
She was gracious enough to meet us on short notice. My son enjoyed Leona, she really helped him understand the material easily. Thanks Leona!
- Helen C. from Centreville, VA
Leona is an exceptional tutor. She worked with my son over the last few months to prepare him for the ASVAB. After an initial meeting, she developed a detailed plan for my son and went above and beyond to prepare him for his test. She met him often and was always prepared for the tutoring session. She was able to explain complex material clearly, and made subjects, previously difficult for my son, very understandable. My son did GREAT on the ASVAB and now has several options for various jobs in the Navy. Leona is the BEST!!
- Evelyn D. from Burke, VA
Leona was well prepared, and was always helping my daughter out. She made study guides with all of the things she needed to know, to help her prepare for the exam. Very patient, and knows what she is doing. Made my daughter a lot more confident going into the science mid-term.

Ms. Leona is a very patient and passionate tutor. She helps me look at things in a different way. Math is my weakest subject, but she always shows me an easier way to solve problems. She's very focused on my needs and works with me on a very steady pace. I can really understand my weaknesses and strengths when working with Ms. Leona. She challenges me to better myself so I can easily am accomplish my goals. Ms. Leona is an awesome tutor! Thank you so much!!
- Terran D. from Richmond, VA
Ms. R truly wants each student to excel at each subject. She is extremely dedicated to this job and puts forth her best effort to make sure that she can provide material to cover any topics the student is struggling with. She is extremely knowledgeable and can help with a wide variety of subjects, which I found was incredibly helpful. She is also very patient and always has something positive to say which provides a very comfortable environment to work in.
- Samantha Z. from Glen Allen, VA
Leona was very prompt in returning our call and setting up tutoring session. She is very professional yet very relatable. She is a real encourager. Our daughter was thrilled with what they had accomplished in her first session. "I understood more in that one session than I have all year in class." I would highly recommend Leona to come along side to help give your student the confidence they need to accomplish their goals. After four meetings with Leona our daughter's grade has greatly improved. We could not be more pleased! 94% on her last math test! Yeah for our tutor Leona!
- Anne F. from Midlothian, VA
Great tutor! My Grades and test scores increased after the 2nd session. Leona has remarkable patience and relates well with me. I am a hands on learner and she gets that. Instead of her working out the problems on the white board herself she lets me due it so that she can see what I am doing wrong. She brings in extra worksheets from offline which helps me a lot. She continues to encourage me and gives my mom feedback after each session. My confidence has increased a great deal and I feel less stress when it comes to studying and taking test.
